league of why do people do this

bad-photogr4phs  asked:

Why do I feel like this is gonna end pretty bad? Look at the bigger picture: justice league will probably stop Batman, and given Selina's actual development, she's a wanted villain who killed 237 people (even though we know she didn't do it). I was extremely happy with all the engagement, but it seems to me they will put on that Batman is 'crazy' or something. I don't know. I'm worried. Maybe I'm overreacting, I don't know.

This is what Tom King said about how people around him are going to react:

Some people are going to think, ‘Oh, my gosh, he’s gone insane, we need to fix him.’ And others will go, ‘He’s gone sane. We finally have a Batman we’ve been looking for’.

The only reason people, including those in his life, would perceive this as “Batman is crazy” is because it seems out of character for him to want to pursue personal happiness. He’s become so pigeonholed into the role of brooding, miserable, justice-obsessed orphan that people can’t see him as anything else or wanting anything else, and that’s exactly the perception that Tom King is trying to disrupt. There is no reason why his sanity should be questioned just because he wants happiness in his life because that’s something that every reasonable person would want. The decision for Batman to pursue happiness isn’t the result of a mental lapse and it didn’t come out of nowhere. How it manifested itself was pretty surprising but there are actual recent events where you can see how Batman’s way of thinking and motivations have evolved and that, my friends, is character development. 

“The Button” was a pinnacle moment in this. This is in a sense Bruce seeing his father for the first time as a father himself. Flashpoint Thomas Wayne carries the same burden that Bruce carries. He understands the costs of a lifetime of crime fighting, neverending suffering and personal sacrifice, and he doesn’t want that for his *son*. He told Bruce to find happiness.This forces Bruce to reflect on the example that he’s setting for his own son and he realizes that Damian is going down the same path as him and that’s not the life he wants for him either. In a way it was three generation converging past, present, and future and essentially Thomas was saying “it’s too late for me but it’s not too late for you.” Bruce made a very conscientious decision to seek happiness in his life and he believes that that involves Selina Kyle. There was nothing “crazy” about it.  

Some people are going to be okay with it; some are not, and it might disrupt some of his other relationships. Bruce isn’t going to let the feelings of third parties dictate his actions otherwise he wouldn’t have knowingly, illegally broken into a closed country. I see his attitude about it being more like ‘you don’t have to like it but it’s happening’. King has 100 issues planned so far, this engagement isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Do you see this? It’s things like this that keep breaking my heart. Anna knows all about hell, and she goes to touch him and he flinches back, not expecting (even more than usual) that someone might want to touch him with kindness. Why would they, after that happened in hell? He thinks he doesn’t deserve kindness or gentleness in any way. But the way he goes still, blinks and settles into it; look how much he wants this kind of gentle kindness and seriously, this man breaks my heart over and over again. 

Okay so in the comics, Pidge is forced to fight her mind-controlled teammates. She knows everyone’s weaknesses, and exploits them to win the fight. However, Shiro has no weaknesses- she has to hack his galra hand to win.

In the Justice League comics, Batman has analyzed his teammates and keeps their weaknesses in briefcases as a contingency plan. However, Wonder Woman has no weaknesses. Her briefcase is empty.

What I’m saying is Pidge is the Batman of Voltron, and Shiro is Wonder Woman.

THOUGHTS OF A HOCKEY FAN

1.) “Why’d they blow the play dead?”

2.) “How is that even a penalty?”

3.) “What is ‘goaltender interference’?”

4.) “How the shit is that goaltender interference?”

5.) “That was the weakest penalty call I’ve ever seen.”

6.) “What the fuck are you even doing ref?”

7.) “ThAt’S nOt A pEnAlTy YoU bLiNd FuCk.”

8.) “Shut up Pierre.”

9.) “I hate every single one of these players, why are you even in the NHL.”

10.) “I can’t actually believe I’m watching beer league players.”

11.) “Wait…. When did he get traded? Who even are these people.”

12.) “I hate hockey and the players hate me.”

13.) “Oh there’s gonna be a figh–false alarm, they just hugged.”

14.) “Our goalie is going to kill every single one of his teammates and I might actually help.”

15.) “What the actual hell is our coach even doing? Can he be fired pls.”

Bonus: “I miss hockey.”

What rivalry?

i’ve watched homecoming and my feelings are real and overwhelming so have some awkward dad! tony and precious! peter

Why am I here?”

It isn’t that Peter is ungrateful, not one bit. Stark’s couches are way more comfortable than the ones he’s got at home, Stark’s desks are equipped with all kinds of features that no 15 year old would ever require to do simple homework, Stark’s windows are long and only slightly tinted and give way to an amazing view; basically, Stark’s everything is somehow just better.

But this, what they’re doing, isn’t making a whole lot of sense.

Tony doesn’t look up from the tablet in his hand, simply makes a confused sound. “What do you mean why?”

Peter shakes his head, looking around incredulously before settling his eyes on Tony. “I mean, there’s no work, no mission, no Avengers protocol that’s been activated, but you sir, went out of your way to invite me over. And I’m not sure I understand why.”

Tony does look up at this, eyes narrowed accusingly.

“I didn’t go out of my way, wha-“

You called me,” Peter interrupts. “You called me, on my cell, right after class. You called me, told me to come, and even sent Happy to make sure I got here.” Happy was anything but, well, happy, to constantly play the role of chaperone/driver for a 15 year old. Peter could understand that, no hard feelings.

Back and Forth

This was the very first request I got!

 @bee-wrecker  

In this you are already going out with thomas

Pronouns: Her/She

Job: Not mentioned

________________________________________________________________

It was a bright summers afternoon. Y/n and her boyfriend Thomas were sitting in her living room, playfully bantering between one another when a certain topic came up.

“Okay. So, which one of my personalities do you like the most?” Thomas asked Y/n, shooting her a goofy grin.

“Hm, I really like both Princy and Anxiety.” She responded, smirking right back at her lover. She started to become a bit timid before looking down and adding, “Like, honestly, if they were to fight over me I would be a hundred percent okay with it.”

“Oh, really? Haha, I’ll have to keep that in mind.” Thomas said playfully, holding his girl even tighter than before.

~One Week Later~

“Hey, Thomas! I’m Here!” Y/n called into her boyfriend’s house.

Walking just a little bit more down the hall she was absolutely shocked from what she saw.

Her boyfriend stood there with of half of him looking like Roman and the other half of him looking like Anxiety.

“Hi! Guess what I’ve been up to!” Thomas says to his girlfriend, who was dying of laughter. At that moment things got way weirder than because he started to do the unthinkable.

“My lady, you are as fair as ever I see.” Roman said, well it was Thomas using his Princy voice.

“Oh my god, Thomas, please don’t” Y/n pleaded, already embarrassed from his costume.

“I told you that you didn’t have a chance with her. Hey, Babe, how you been?” Anxiety said.

“Stop trying to wow her with your smoothness, you heathen.” Roman said

“Do you even know what a ‘heathen’ is? Don’t mind him, he doesn’t know how out of his league you are” Anxiety rebutled

That lead to a long back and forth that Thomas had with himself through his personalities.

“Thomas, why are you doing this to me?” The flushing girl asked.

“Aw! Babe, I was just joking!” Thomas said laughing as he pulled Y/n into a hug.

In the end they both just wound up laughing about the whole thing. When people got confused about their inside jokes from the whole situation, they just glanced at one another and started to laugh. It was great but Y/n with never forget the embarrassment from those few moments.

i really should be getting ready for work but right now i’m thinking about a life well lived. i want to become better, and i don’t mean i want a prestigious internship at an big tech company, or a higher gpa, or a book deal, even though all of these are things i do want. i want to become a more self-aware and empathetic person. i want to refine my critical thinking skills. i just read a few essays criticizing ivy league schools and the “excellent sheep” such institutes produce. kids who have great work ethics but are driven to succeed, but have no idea why they do the things they do. i always want to know why i do something, even if the why is not pretty. 

i’ve noticed this dichotomy. i guarantee that most of my friends and classmates, if asked, would admit that the college admissions process is superficial, that our society cultivates a culture where kids feel pressured to do certain things not out of sheer interest or enjoyment, but for their resumes. but all the same, these same people chase after markers of validation: that 5.0, that high-paying internship, that club leadership position. i look back on my high school experiences and i know that my awards served as anchors. i didn’t pursue them to boost my college apps; i pursued them to boost my self-esteem. i don’t know which falsehood is worse–using superficial symbols of success to impress others, or myself.

i don’t want to do things without purpose, and i don’t want to live in a toxic, elitist, ultra-competitive bubble. i’m tired of being in an environment where people talk about how smart someone is because he/she won an international olympiad gold medal, or got an internship that pays $10k a month, or took graduate math courses as a freshman, and nobody talks about if someone is kind or trustworthy or resilient. 

Twofold

A/N: An anon request for one where the reader starts at the BAU and Spencer isn’t so nice when she first joins the team. It turns out, he likes her. @coveofmemories

                                                                —-

“I don’t get it, Morgan,” you said, sitting down next to one of your best friends in the Bureau. Ever since you started, Morgan had seen you as a little sister. Very protective - sometimes to a fault. But no matter what, he always meant the best for you. 

Since you were new to the area, he and Garcia had been taking you out and about, introducing you to the best places to shop for groceries, clothes, go for coffee, books, etc. You told them everything, so for the past few weeks, anytime Spencer snapped at you or ignored you, you went to them wondering what the fuck was up. “What don’t you get, babygirl?” he asked. 

Just then, Garcia came up behind you. “I thought I was your babygirl,” she said jokingly.

“I have plenty of love to go around,” he laughed, stretching out his arms and pointing at his beautiful, muscular, confident self. 

He definitely filled the big brother role. You never had any siblings so you’d officially adopted Morgan as your own. Your eyes rolled wildly up in your head before you started in on what was bothering you. “Ever since I started, Spencer has been snapping at me or ignoring me, and I don’t know why. It’s pissing me off that I can’t figure it out. Like, I don’t know what I did to make him hate me.”

Garcia wrapped her arms around your neck, giving you a hug from behind. “He doesn’t hate you. But I think I might know what’s going on.”

“Really?” Both you and Morgan exclaimed simultaneously. You wondered whether anyone knew and whether you were just paranoid. 

Walking around to take a seat next to Morgan, she smiled. “In my opinion, the reason is two-fold.” Proudly, Morgan looked at her. Apparently, he had the same theory. “One,” she said, “You are also a genius - a Spencer-level genius. He’s carved out a very special place on the team and in our hearts, which can never ever be replaced or duplicated, but my guess is that he feels like you’re trying to outdo him.”

Your mouth dropped open at the realization. “But why would he think that? What did I ever do to make him think I was trying to replace him? I just wanna complement the team.”

“We know that,” Morgan said. “But you do have a tendency to talk over him, whether you mean to or not.”

“Do I?” Did you? God, you never wanted to give him that impression. You looked up to Spencer. Throughout college, you’d read his papers; he was the reason you wanted to join - to be like him and meet the man who’d inspired you so much. “The last thing I ever wanted to do was make him think I was trying to replace him.” You hesitated for a moment. “What’s the second reason?”

Garcia craned her head to look around, making sure no one else, especially Spencer, was coming up behind her before she spoke. “The other reason, as far as I can tell, is that he likes you.”

“What?” you exclaimed far too loudly for such a large office. Didn’t that kind of shit happen in high school, grade school even? “Since when does an adult express their interest my ignoring them?”

Morgan handed you a chocolate chip cookie he got earlier, which you immediately downed out of anger and confusion. “Since it’s Reid,” he said, shrugging his shoulders as Garcia took a bite of the cookie you were still holding in your hand. “He doesn’t get these things. He’s liked very few women since we’ve known him and he has absolutely no clue how to express an interest. I would say the ignoring stems from the fact that he likes you and doesn’t know how to react or what to say, and the snapping is because he feels like you’re trying to replace him.” He lifted up a hand on either side. “See, two fold.”

“Oh, fuck me,” you said, letting your head fall back. You understood Spencer was different than most men, but you had underestimated his feelings for you. Never in a million years would you have guessed he had an interest. “Are you guys sure?”

“Sure as I can be,” Garcia said.

“I’m positive,” Morgan said. “When you’re not looking at him, he can’t keep his eyes off you.” Dammit. Next time you were alone and he pulled that shit you were going to call him out on it. 

Ever since the day you walked in, you’d had the hots for Spencer. He was brilliant, and he wasn’t bad to look at either, but you hadn’t said anything because you were convinced he hated you - and now this? You wanted to smack him.

Later in the day, you found yourself alone with Spencer in the file room. Garcia had asked for something from you, and Hotch sent Spencer down there for something else. “Hey,” you said, figuring you’d let him dig his own grave before smacking the shit out of him. “What’s up? How’s your day been?”

As he entered the room before you, he said next to nothing, shrugging his shoulders and turning toward the file cabinet he needed. Now that Morgan and Garcia had pointed it out, you couldn’t believe you didn’t see it before. “Nothing?” you asked. “Nothing interesting’s happened today?”

“Not really,” he said. “I just wanna grab what Hotch needs and get upstairs without any distraction, okay?” You could feel the heat in his voice.

Angrily, you turned around and grabbed his arm, snapping him toward you and taking him by surprise. “Okay, Spencer, what the hell is up?”

“What are you talking about, Y/N?”

He was still playing stupid. You wanted to smack his beautiful face. “Dammit, Spencer. Ever since I started you’ve been rude to me. I started this job because I was inspired by you.” You jabbed your finger into his chest, causing him to back up slightly and his mouth to drop one. “I wanted to meet the man who inspired me and I walk in here and you’re an ass to me. Now, if I’ve stepped on some toes, I’m sorry, but it was never my intent to make you feel like I was pushing you out. I’m just trying to do my job. You snap at me all the time and when that’s not happening you’re ignoring me. Are we not adults?”

His eyes dropped. For an instant, you felt bad, his puppy eyes looking all sad and dejected, but he needed it. “I’m sorry,” he said softly, bringing his one hand up toward his arm and clutching it to himself. “You’re right. I’ve been rude. I just…you talk over me all the time and correct me in front of the others. I’ve only ever had my intelligence going for me. I’m not tough like Morgan, or cunning like Rossi. I’m not like everyone else, so seeing someone come in, who’s just as intelligent, and basically a mixture of the best pieces of everyone rolled into one person, I…I acted like a child. I’m sorry.”

He thought you were the best of everyone all rolled into one? That was high praise. Your teammates were amazing people and agents. “I’ll forgive you,” you said with a smile, turning around to grab the file you needed. “And I know I have the tendency to speak over people. I’ll work on it.”

“Thank you,” he replied. “I appreciate it…but that isn’t all.” Oh my god, they were right. He liked you. When you turned around and urged him to continue, he blushed. “I’ve…had a bit of a crush on you since you started. I don’t normally develop feelings like that for people, so when I do, I don’t really know what to do with them.”

“Is that why you’ve been ignoring me when you’re not snapping at me?” You knew the answer, but you wanted him to confirm it.

He shrugged. “I guess? I just don’t really know what to say to someone who is so out my league, so when you started talking over me, I just used that as an excuse to be rude I guess.”

“Just so you realize the whole ‘boy ignores girl because boy likes girl’ thing is a trope that should be left in the past,” you said, brushing up against his arm on the way out of the file room. Again, he looked ashamed. “You underestimate yourself, Spencer. Your worth. Your place on this team. Garcia was just telling me today that you were irreplaceable.”

“Really?”

“Really. You are the team’s resident genius, but you’re a Spencer genius, and I’m a Y/N genius. There’s room for both. If we can both try to work on our arrogance.” He nodded, pushing the elevator button to head back upstairs. “But you’re more than a genius. I see how you are with everyone else. You love them wholeheartedly. You’re tough in your own way. You may not be as physically strong as Morgan, but physicality isn’t the be all end all of strength. And despite what you may think, you’re not bad to look at either.” When his head snapped to meet your gaze, you winked. As your floor approached, you figured you’d let him know outright, so you leaned in and pressed a tentative, but promising kiss on his soft lips. “As long as we’re both going to work on ourselves, I’d be interested in going out some time.”

And as the doors open, you left him behind, dumbfounded. It was nice to leave a fellow genius speechless.

anonymous asked:

Your tags on that spoiler you reblogged for ML is exactly how I'm feeling right now.

yeah some people are wondering why people would ever want tiny, minuscule, disconnected teasers rather than waiting for the whole thing. but the whole point of advertising a new season of a show is to create hype. you create hype by showing us small bits of things we haven’t seen before or aren’t expecting. you get people talking, you get people theorizing, you get people excited, and then they’re more likely to tune into the show. that’s basic marketing. 

leading with lovesquare teasers doesn’t do much in my opinion. we already know that these kids like each other, and we’ve already seen all four corners of the lovesquare interact in some way shape or form. seeing a ladrien scene isn’t exciting. it’s more of what we already got in season 1. 

the value of season 2 is the plot. the fact that master fu and marinette are finally sitting down to talk about the miraculouses. the fact that we’re going to get new villains. the fact that we’re going to get new miraculous heroes, and that these new miraculous heroes are going to be going through some major character development in order to become these heroes. we finally have a continuous narrative to latch onto and that’s ridiculously exciting! 

if you’re going to be marketing season 2, the best way, in my opinion, is to give very small teasers and spoilers relating to that. i’m not talking huge bombshells like telling us who the new miraculous heroes are going to be. i’m talking an audio track of the bee miraculous transformation. i’m talking a quick peek at the new villain. i’m talking a line or two from marinette or master fu’s conversation. show us a small bit of some new powers that we should be expecting if there are any. small bursts of info that are small enough to not spoil anything major but big enough to get people talking are the key here. 

this is why the fandom is so dead and no one is talking about this show right now. they’re not getting people excited. and before anyone brings up the excuse about it being just a kid’s show, i can name other kid’s shows right off the top of my head that hyped up their new seasons leagues better than miraculous ladybug is doing right now. it’s possible. zag’s just not doing a great job with it. 

I am so sick of support mains because all they talk about is how that’s they’re their main role and brag about it as if people are supposed to be impressed. Most can’t even play other roles because they simply refuse to get out of support. Super annoying, get over yourselves for God’s sake NO ONE CARES.

Secondary Worlds, awww yeah

I, personally, will not think about, for example, the history of agriculture in your secondary world unless you’ve made an attempt to make it important and failed. Like “said,” food supply should be invisible (unless, of course, you’re in a siege and it’s super important). You can assume that there are fields somewhere that aren’t mentioned because let me tell you, if an author put half the stuff people complain about into their novel, the one star reviews would not end

Now, I do care about: a) history; b) politics; c) gender; and d) international relations. These are my concerns as a reader. 

a) A lot of fantasy feels ahistorical – the only history that matters is the history that makes Our Hero/ine secretly ruler of the main country. And I’m not saying you should go full Tolkien, at all, even though I wouldn’t mind if you did (if you did it right); but you should probably know about and possibly allude to historical figures that don’t have much bearing on the narrative. Do they have a Founder? Are there heroes of the realm? Singers? etc. If you go through a modern conversation, people will refer to pop cultural phenomena – “Pull an [X Celebrity!]”. There is probably some sort of pop culture in your world. And it doesn’t have to be long! your character can make a passing reference, as long as context makes it clear. 

b) I love people who are good at playing political games and I love fantasy that has laws and politics and all that. You don’t have to! You can have a court that functions as the narrative needs it to – so what if there wasn’t really absolute rule in the Middle Ages, if you need to have the king unilaterally ban your Hero/ine from leaving the castle, you do that. It all depends on the kind of story you’re telling. But if you do decide to do court politics, read, for example, 18th century court memoirs, which will tell you the concerns of courtiers. 

c) this is simpler. Do whatever you want with gender and gender roles – but do question it. Do we really need another story in which women, except your heroine, are obsessed with their self-image and doing household tasks and getting married (all portrayed negatively)? And, like, sure, do we really need another story in which the main plot is war and killing things, even if it’s women doing it? nah, probably not – but if you are going to do that kind of plot, why not include women as warriors? 

d) ties into a). Your country does not exist in a vacuum. If the Duke of M– is refusing to contribute his levy to the national levy because the Queen slighted his mistress at the last ball, will the neighboring country take the opportunity to invade? (also, is there a standing army?) Your country probably has history with countries around it. Did it win independence from one of them? Does it have an England/France style rivalry with another? Is there a League of Fantasy Nations? 

But this is if you want to write a policy-heavy book! if you don’t, that’s fine, and if you do your plot and character well enough, I at least won’t notice the supply-holes, or I might but I won’t care about them. (Where does Gondor get its food? there are outlying farms, duh, that’s where the women and children are sent at the end of the siege.) 

Basically, why do you want to write a secondary world? is it to include magic? then think about how magic would affect the lives of people in your world. Is it to have alt-history type conflicts? Think about politics! Is it to rehash tired concepts of what the Middle Ages were but this time with cooler weapons? Maybe don’t do that. The end.

I’ve been debating whether or not to make this post for a while now, but given recent events I feel like it’s as relevant a time as ever to share this story. 

I’m as happy as anyone else that Wonder Woman is so successful, and I’m psyched as hell to eventually see it myself. But people tend to use it as a vehicle with which to tear down the previous DCEU movies, and while people often come to the defense of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, more often than not I see Suicide Squad being left out or thrown under the bus or otherwise ignored. 

As many of my followers know, I am obsessed with Suicide Squad. It just struck a cord with me in a very deep and meaningful way, and this personal story I’m about to share is only one of many reasons as to why.

I know a lot of people like to make fun of Suicide Squad, and that’s fine, whatever, have your fun, I don’t care. There’s just one line in particular from the movie I see criticized possibly more than any other line of dialogue in the film.

When Harley Quinn is chastising Diablo for wanting a normal life and a family while also being a metahuman, and she says “Normal is a setting on the dryer.”

Yeah, okay, it’s a funny line. It does totally sound like something you would see on a T-shirt at Hot Topic or something. But that line is so important to me, and here is why:

For anyone who doesn’t already know this about me, I’m autistic. I was diagnosed when I was eleven, just starting middle school. I had a guidance counsellor who decided the best thing to do in order to prepare my fellow classmates for dealing with me was to tell my entire class that I was autistic.

At this point in time, autism wasn’t something that was widely talked about or educated about, and these are middle schoolers we’re talking about here. Most of them didn’t really know what autism was or what it meant. I wish I could tell you that I got bullied, but that’s not what happened. If anything, I was picked on more BEFORE my diagnosis came out.

But once everyone knew? They avoided me like the plague, because they thought that they would catch it if they got too close.

I didn’t have a friend in the world.

I came home from school one day, crying, and told my dad about it; told him that no one wanted to talk to me or be my friend because I wasn’t “normal.” I will never forget what he said to me.

He said, “Well, what’s normal, anyway? Normal doesn’t exist. Normal is just a setting on a dryer.

That stuck with me ever since. Hearing that line said in a movie, a superhero movie, and coming from Harley Quinn of all people, a character I’ve loved since childhood, was huge for me.

That’s what Suicide Squad means to me. It means that no matter who you are, even if you’re someone who society considers “bad” or “wrong” or “abnormal,” you can still be a hero and do good things and be successful even if you don’t even believe that about yourself. That’s why I connect so much more with the Squad than I do to any of the Avengers or yes, even the Justice League. These characters feel like they are made of the same stuff that I am made of. That’s why this movie is just as important as any other movie in the DCEU thus far.

So people can have their fun and their jokes, I’m not gonna try and take that away from them. Just so long as they don’t try and take that deeper, personal meaning away from me.
